Afternoon all!! 


Hope everyone's taper madness is ticking away nicely!! Fab PR yesterday Malcs!

Angela your marathon did look like good fun, did anyone not do it in fancy dress? 

Hope everyone's injuries and niggles are on the mend.

To swim Coniston took 3hs 52mins Sense, same as any marathon we had water and feed stations along the way, only you get jelly babies on every station and gels too! and when you finish you get hot squash to drink. Haha so when you think about it at least I got 1 marathon sub 4 this year!

Been rather a busy week here,started training properly again this week, and loving it! Being brave hitting the track on Tuesday all by myself!! eek!

Hey Stan Im absolutely peachy! Been really busy this year, worked hard and absolutely loved it!

Triathlons are so much fun you should try one!  I did my first tri this year with Clive it was absolutely epic such a buzz! The thing is not to underestimate the training involved.  As for the open water swimming I would suggest finding a swimming group in your area to swim with, learn to love the open water before you start to think about everything else that will come with time and confidence.  Last saturday I swam Coniston end to end, which is at 6 miles is classed as a marathon distance swim, it was just the best!

Ouch cocking up your calculations wasnt the best idea now was it! Always look at the positives! Granted not always easy to find, the next day they pop out a lot clearer! What other races have you got coming up? 

How did park run go?

I'm lucky DS2 is a very good friend of mine, he is coaching me, has worked out every step of my training plan. We speak daily and its helped him focus on something other than recovery from his foot injury. We met when I went to bootcamp first time. Other than that I would have applied for the Forum 6. I really do love the look of your plan only I already do a fair amount of milage, I will be sub 4 this year, and as for the other one....erm.... *choose words carefully tigger don't want to be made to feel a vilan again* it's not for me!

I didn't literally help put Gingermagic in Bramster's soup because clearly that just sounds wrong!!

Great read Ruth thank you! Will definitely try the quick curry!!

Hey, Glad your LSR today is going well! Loving the photos...keeping us on our toes with the angle of the photos and all that!  thought it was just the wine!! 

I did my 14 LSR today too, I actually love having the 'workout' setting on! Concentration on the pace detracts from thinking about distance a little! I ran with 2 friends...when I say ran.... we did for most of it... but then dragged there ass's for the last few miles, and maybe ran the last faster 1 on my own!! I'm totally loving being told what to do for my training, makes a big difference when someone else has so much faith in your ability doesn't it!

Tried the Shot Blocks didn't have them during the run but had one on my walk home! they are yummy! 

Cant believe you are on week 4 already!

Hey Gordie Jo I'm saying nothing about the other thread!! 

sub 4 hour group,if anyone wants to get together

Evening All!!

You should have a look at the forum 6 thread! As either!! My friend had a mentor the other year, loved it! and I'm loving being told what to do!

Go Howard with your new pb! Cant beat a good run to give us a boost!

I had a 14 miler this morning! Fab pacing felt really good, so at the end of this week have a happy 36 miles under my belt!!

Afternoon All!! Superman You do have a great thread!

Well Done on VLM Charles! 

Thought I'd pop back out of lurking as we on one my favourite subjects.....SWEETS!!!

Very interested in gel recommendations! I used the High5 until I tried the caffeine ones by accident which did sit better than the ones without! But for this marathon as I actually have my first proper training plan (which I am sticking to like glue) I should look to plan my fuelling too!

Ignore my last message, the workout I was looking at was hills where I had individual splits due to them being set up as separate sections.

So I'v set mine up as all 1 mile then repeat depending on how many miles I'm doing....simples!
